HBO historical series

6The series are gradually arriving on the platforms in 2022. For this reason, we are still starting the year and there are already several very special proposals. One of them is 'The Golden Age' that will become the new success of HBO MAX. Much has been talked about a production like this and the time has come to see it with our own eyes.

The first chapter reaches 80 minutes in length. Because it is true that it has to give us background information and also introduce us to the plot and the main characters. A period drama that comes from the hand of the creator Julian Fellowes who has other hits to his credit such as 'Downton Abbey'. You want to know more?

Creator Julian Fellowes brings us closer to 'The Gilded Age'

First of all we have to mention its creator, because although it is always important, in this case even more so. Since he has numerous audience successes to his credit. One of the main ones is 'Downton Abbey', a British television series that tells us the story of the Crawley familywho is part of the aristocracy. With a total of 6 seasons, it was confirmed as one of the most successful series. But not content with it, it seems that Fellowes has still given life to other titles that are not far behind. It seems that period stories are one of his favorite resources and in this case, he will have them again. The Golden Age occurs in the United States after the so-called War of Succession, where the economic expansion of the country had an important takeoff.

what is this series about

It is a series that is set at the end of the XNUMXth century and that takes us to New York. In it we will see how a young woman named Marian Brook goes to the big city from Pennsylvania, since her father has just passed away and will live with her aunts. It seems that these have a good economic position, although there will be no lack of problems derived from the issue of money. It is usual that the social echelons are always present in a narrative like this. Although Marian is not traveling alone, she will be traveling with another young woman who wants to become a writer. Perhaps that new place is also the beginning of a new family life or perhaps each one has to take her own path.

The main characters of 'The Golden Age'

The protagonist is Marian Brook who is the one who moves to live with her aunts and is played by Louisa Jacobson. Her aunts are Agnes who is played by Christine Baranski and Ada Brook who will be Cinthia Nixon. The latter also has another successful series on HBO MAX such as 'And just like that' which is the continuation of 'Sex and the City' 20 years later. The one who accompanies Marian is Peggy, that is, Denée Benton in real life. The millionaire marriage made up of George and Bertha Russell will be played by Morgan Spector and Carrie Coon.

The future success of the series

It is true that it may be compared with other works by the same director and in part it is the big mistake, although on the other hand it is inevitable when certain similar ideas are intertwined. Well, on the one hand it seems that the great success comes from the hands of the cast. What's more translates as an entertaining series despite the fact that he is already receiving some criticism due to his stories or dialogues. Without a doubt, it is another option that we must take into account if you like this type of series. Each week you will have an episode available, so it will give you time to enjoy each one of them. Will you give 'The Golden Age' a chance?
